I see the Sony store has the MDR-1000x on sale...only the cream version though but at 30% off is a bloody good deal.
Good spot and a great deal @$489.
Great, I see this today, and the sale price is already over! Though, TBH, I don't think I could have lived with the cream anyway.
I went in to JB yesterday to see if they have them in stock yet, but no luck. Any further advance on when they may become more readily available? I'm not willing to pay $700 for them when they do, so hope they'll come down to something more affordable with a "mate's rate" sale or similar. I'd also like to have a listen to them before spending that sort of money.
Can anyone who owns either the QC35s or MDR-1000Xs say how they find them for transmitting the sound of footsteps? I've got a pair of Focus (non-NC) headphones that just amplify my footsteps when walking on footpaths, and I'd hoped to ensure any new phones don't do this. It's a bit hard to check this out in-store!
